You’ve gotta get a gimmick…

I’ve managed to get myself a little bit sorted out now – I’ve bought a back pack, packed it, un-packed it a but, left everything on my bed in the vain hope that it will sort itself out.  I’ve got a room in a Travelodge for the night before my flight, I’ve got Mum taking me to London in her Mystery Machine, ta Mum.  I’ve even gone so far as to book a hostel for my first few nights in Bangkok.  I know crazy, eh?  And in 20 minutes I’ll be off for my hepatitis A booster.

Well now I’m obviously procrastinating because I’ve yet to get up, have shower, get dressed, but I have come up with something to do in the next two weeks – make myself a travel companion!


I realise that this will make me a bit of a saddo, but I think it will amuse me, if no-one else, if I have something to take with me to take pictures of in interesting places.  It could be a cultural and twitter phenomenon (it won’t be).

So instead of buying a teddy and taking pictures of it that I could use for teaching purposes, I’m going to make a travelling companion out of felt. Because I can do that sort of thing. I know what I wold like to make already, but I’d like your input please, so comments below.  First one to get it right will win some sort of prize yet to be decided.

  1. Will your felt companion have a dual purpose? Eg mascot doubles as phone case, place to conceal some cash documents.
